Still at the top of my list!
First thing to expect at the hostel is to be welcomed with a tour of the facilities and house rules. The hostel left me a very good impression of the German standard. They wipe and vacuum every single inch of the room and facilities daily, especially the restroom. Thumbs up for the Housekeepers! And forget not Ivy, our very own Hostel Canine Ambassador!
